GEL-STAIN is a waterbased, gelled stain designed to give rich deep colors on wood with little or no grain-raise. The unique “gelled” formulation not only gives substantially more open time, but also has the added advantage of vertical cling and lower blotching characteristics. Application: GEL-STAIN can be brush, rolled or sprayed. To prevent the stain from lapping apply very liberally which will allow sufficient time to wipe the excess off in the direction of the grain. On wood species that tend to blotch use ECO-STAIN conditioner first. When spraying the stain on to the substrate, no thinning is required, it will spray through the equipment then thicken again on contact. Dry Time: GEL-STAIN is designed to dry quickly yet give sufficient time to work. Product must be completely dry before another coat is applied. Normal topcoating can be done in 60 to 90 minutes. Clean-Up: Clean and flush all equipment with water immediately after use.
